After chairing the Hausfeld law firm for 13 years, starting next year, Michael D. Hausfeld will step back into his new role as chair emeritus. That does not mean he is stepping down, he points out. As reported previously by The National Law Journal, the global boutique litigation firm with five offices in the U.S. and seven in Europe, is undergoing a leadership transition. Hausfeld’s career has included major human rights, discrimination as well as antitrust and environmental law cases. I sat down with him to take a look back at his legacy and talk about what advice he would give to the next generation of lawyers.
